Abstract:A new monitor for volatile anaesthetics, the Datex Normac, was assessed in the laboratory and operating theatre. The instrument had a warm up time of 90 minutes from cold, but only 5 minutes from standby. Zero drift was less than 0.01% over 7 hours, and repeated measurements of gain showed a coefficient of variation of less than 1%. However, gain drift of 6% occurred when the instrument was switched off between periods of use. Signal noise was less than 0.02 vol% on a new instrument, but was about six times greater on an instrument that had been in use for a year. The response time of 550 ms is short enough to allow breath by breath monitoring. When the instrument was calibrated on the enflurane setting, measurements made on the enflurane, halothane and isoflurane settings were accurate to within 6% of the reading. This is satisfactory for clinical purposes, but not for more demanding applications. Calibration canisters are available, and two that we tested were accurate to better than 0.1 vol%. Nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide and water vapour have very small effects on the monitor. The instrument provided trouble-free monitoring in theatre.
